Wolves aren’t native to New Jersey, but if you know where to look, you are guaranteed a glimpse into their behaviour. Best seen in the winter, when their coats are thick and full, the wolves present themselves as king of the canines. To observe these animals close-up, you’ll have to follow a winding mountain road up a short distance from I-94. Look for the camp ground and a burly man with a big bushy white beard, looking much like a wild wolf himself. You can tell he has spent countless years in intimate contact with these magnificent creatures. Dan Bacon has spent over a decade caring for and raising wolves from pups to their final rest. He considers these animals part of his family and is concerned fro their protection. He asks, no demands that visitors give the wolves the respect that they deserve. Taunting, teasing, or trying to touch the wolves will result in a strong reprimand. Yes, the wolves are close enough to touch during the provided photography tour that is available at added cost from the site.
